..this years hatching of blue tits.
Mum has laid her eggs in the pump over the old well and the noise is terrific. I did my eyeballs in the sky routine the other day and after some serious squinting found all these little eyes peering back at me.
Difficult when when you're hanging washing or doing some gardening but I have to avoid the area near the pump as much as possible or mum gives me earache.
What gets me is how she gets down to the level she does to make her nest given all the metal bits involved, and then how she gets the chicks out. However she does it I feel very honoured that she's chosen my garden and my pump.
First cat that comes close will be tailless !!
